Alex Iwobi admits that he may have to consider his future at Arsenal if the club sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Zaha this summer but Roy Hodgson recently claimed that the north London side haven’t come anywhere near meeting Palace’s valuation.

It has been reported that Arsenal have had a bid of £40million rejected for the Ivory Coast international but the Eagles are understood to want nearer £80million for the winger.

Any move for Zaha would see Iwobi’s minutes on the pitch limited and the 23-year-old admits he could have to consider his future.

“I am not one to chicken out,” Iwobi told The Sun . “I have had it all over the years, being told I’m not good enough.

“So whenever the chance comes I always try and prove I should be starting. But it’s going to be difficult if Zaha comes. He will add more stress.

“Obviously my joy is to play football and not just sit out.

“If it comes to that I would have no choice but to leave. But I would always put up a fight to play – that is what I’ve done all my life.”
